Man flips Volvo four times, crawls out and demands a fight

Gurnee: Flipped car doesn't stop angry driver :: News Sun :: News Readign this, do you feel like you're staring into the dark heart of America herself?

The incident occurred just after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on Delany Road. Goza, 37, of Waukegan was driving his pest control truck from westbound Grove Avenue, to southbound Delany Road, when police say he accidentally cut off the driver of a 2000 Volvo C70.

The driver of the Volvo, Steven Stankovitch, 37, of Waukegan, then began aggressively following Goza for half a mile along Delany Road before, police say, he decided to return the favor.

Stankovitch attempted to pass Goza and cut him off just south of Sunset Avenue, said Gurnee police officer David Ronzani. Only he wasn't too successful.

Stankovitch lost control of his Volvo and jumped the curb, before flipping his car at least four times, taking out a power line and ending up upside down in the parking lot of NOSCO Inc.

Not to be slowed down, a bloodied Stankovitch crawled out of his car and began to pick a fight with Goza.

"This was a road rage situation," Ronzani said. "He flips his car and gets out wanting to fight the other guy."

Iraq facing prosthetic leg shortage

SuicideGirls > News > Politics > Iraq Facing Leg Shortage
The country is in the middle of a prosthetic leg shortage shortage and a huge amputated leg fad. The combination of the two has resulted in a lot of people who are hopping mad. It certainly does not help that bombs are exploding in the streets every day. The Iraq war has a higher incidence of blast injuries from bombs. Injuries from US airstrikes are also a problem, especially because they have “increased fivefold since early 2006.” “Eighty per cent of the injuries that we see here are to the extremities,” says Lieutenant Colonel Wayne Mosley, an orthopedic surgeon at the military hospital in Mosul that treats US soldiers, Iraqi civilians and members of the Iraqi security forces, and runs a clinic for recent Iraqi amputees. “We see a lot of open long bone injuries or vascular injuries that require amputation. We do a lot of amputations below the knee. It is difficult to know how many amputees there are in Iraq, but I would say it is probably the number one operation performed.” US troops are experiencing twice the number of amputations than in any previous war. The amputations are the result of better body armor and the many bombings. In the past, many soldiers would have died from the same type of attacks but modern body armor protects the torso, while leaving the extremities exposed. Thankfully, US soldiers get the newest in prosthetic technology. Iraqis do not.

Crafty surgeons use cellphone lights when blackout strikes mid-operation

Cellphone lights enable operation to proceed in blackout - Engadget
Reportedly, the backup generators at the Policlinico Juan D. Peron hospital in Argentina failed to activate after the power went out whilst an appendix surgery was ongoing, but rather than panicking, a family member gathered up a number of phones in order to provide enough light for the surgeons and anesthetists to keep on keepin' on. According to the hospital director, the operation went on without proper lighting for no more than 20 minutes, but thanks to the beaming LCDs, the fellow under the knife came through just fine.

Beauty, eh? Americans take off to the Great White North in record numbers.

strange_brew_mckenzie.jpgVia Raw Story | CBC News | American moves to Canada reach record high
The number of Americans admitted to Canada last year reached a 30-year high, with a 20 per cent increase over the previous year and nearly double the number that arrived in 2000. The results of a survey, conducted by the Association for Canadian Studies, also revealed that the so-called "brain drain" of Canada appears to be narrowing. The survey found that 10,942 Americans came to Canada in 2006, compared to just over 9,262 in 2005. In 2000, 5,828 came to the country.
